Abstract:

This chapter looks at the effects of the EU Directive limiting the acceptable level of cadmium, a toxic chemical used in the production of plastics. It shows that products exceeding the acceptable limits continue to be imported, sometimes as a result of ignorance in producing and exporting countries, sometimes because of differences in limits set by EU countries, and sometimes because the imported products contain a multiplicity of components obtained from a variety of suppliers, some in compliance, some not.
